Excerpt from Harper's New Monthly Magazine, Vol. 1: June to November, 1850 The design of the Publishers, in issuing this work, is to place within the reach of the great mass of the American people the unbounded treasures of the Periodical Literature of the present day. Periodicals enlist and absorb much of the literary talent, the creative genius, the scholarly accomplishment of the present age. The best writers, in all departments and in every nation, devote themselves mainly to the Reviews, magazines, or Newspapers of the day. And it IS through their pages that the most powerful historical Essays, the most elaborate critical Dis quisitions, the most eloquent delineations of Manners and of Nature, the highest Poetry and the most brilliant Wit, have, within the last ten years, found their way to the public eye and the public heart. This devotion to Periodical writing is rapidly increasing. The leading authors of Great Brit ain and of France, as well as of the United States, are regular and constant contributors to the Periodicals of their several countries. The leading statesmen of France have been for years the leading writers in her journals. Lamar rine has just become the editor of a newspaper. Dickens has just established a weekly journal of his own, through which he is giving to the world some of the most exquisite and delightful creations that ever came from his magic pen. Alison writes constantly for Blackwood. Lev ER is enlisted in the Dublin University Magazine. Bulwer and croly publish their greatest and most brilliant novels first in the pages of the Monthly Magazines of England and of Scotland.

As these pieces demonstrate, Woolson offered keen observations on the issues she cared most deeply about, namely the cultural and political transformation of the United States in the wake of the Civil War, the status of women writers and artists in the nineteenth century, and the growing implications of nationalism and imperialism." "This collection features selections from each of the three distinct periods of Woolson's career and includes a chronology of her life and travels. Focusing primarily on Woolson's short stories, editors Victoria Brehm and Sharon L. Dean also include a representative letter, poem, and travel sketch for each section."--BOOK JACKET.

Excerpt from Harper's New Monthly Magazine, Vol. 38: December 1868, to May, 1869 With purple joy its movements trace, And, crowned with leaves, be gentle, strong; Flow, like its stream, in varied rhyme, And gild his verse with Spoils of time. O'er bingen's hills ripe grapes are hung, Bathing their slopes in purpling mist; 1 While soft, green girdles, zoning, ung 'round wall and tower, with amethyst, Clasp tenderly each shelving ledge, Hanging their jeweled clusters rare O'er every rippling field and hedge; And, crinkling through the loving air, With wavy wealth of murmuring grace Church, hamlet, ood and land enlace.
